Minecraft Dungeons is the newest adventure launched by Mojang that arrives with a new spin on the classic Minecraft formula. The game allows you to roam a variety of dungeons in third-person view, and defeat enemies to reach the wicked Arch-Illager’s castle.
Although Minecraft Dungeons is not the most challenging game, you will need some guidance if you don’t have a lot of experience with dungeon-crawlers. So, while you’re waiting for the game to install, let’s learn some essential tips and tricks.
Fight Mobs Efficiently
Mobs are big groups of opponents who attack you all at once. You don’t have to panic, just be sure to take them in large chunks at your pace. Your main weapons are a bow, an enchantable armor to boost your staying power, and artifacts. You can mix them all up and defeat the mobs.
Try to Use Your Bow and Arrow All the Time
Arrows in Minecraft Dungeons aren’t unlimited, but luckily they’re farmable. Try replaying old levels at lower difficulties and gain lots of arrows. They’re essential because you can take out huge enemies before they even reach the melee distance. You can also quickly shoot annoying mages who run away.
Jump Over Passages Like a Pro
Unfortunately, Minecraft Dungeons comes with no dedicated jump button. However, you can try to use the roll button in the gorge’s direction if it’s only a few squares wide. If the gap is pretty big, don’t even think to jump. You will respawn with less health, and might be as bad as dying.
The Power of Chests
Chests in Minecraft Dungeons are not so easy to spot, but they’re worth the search. You can start by exploring the unnecessary areas of the game’s dungeons. Sometimes, you’ll find a supply chest that can provide you extra arrows or health-restoring food.
Other chests, however, could be more significant. They might bring you artifacts, unique armor, or weapons. Be sure always to pay extra attention!
Prioritize Your Targets
Opponents in Minecraft Dungeons are versatile. You can destroy some with one hit, while others need your extra skills and attention. So, try to kill the easy enemies first, and there’s one huge, armor-clad opponent left, they’ll mainly be arrow fodder. Remember, fight smart, and you’ll never lose. And don’t forget about the mages, though. They’re the most annoying, so you should kill them first no matter what.
